Opeth have launched an exclusive stream of highly-anticipated 11th album Pale Communion.
All eight tracks can be heard below, ahead of its official release on August 25 via Roadrunner Records.
Mainman Mikael Akerfeldt recently told how he’d first thought of calling the record Nux Vomica after a herbal remedy used to treat those suffering from light and sound sensitivity.
He said: "It comes from the same tree that produces the poison strychnine. I liked how it looked and everything. But then somebody read about the side effects, and it was erection problems and constipation.
“I figured, ‘That's going be the first question in interviews,’ – and I thought it was maybe not a good title after all."
